Nestled between the banks of the Schuylkill River and Conshohocken State Rd are several trails that traverse the hills of Gladwyne, PA known as the Bridlewild Trails. These trails can be accessed through one of many wooded parks, and offer a great alternative to the Wissahickon. There are well over 24 miles of trails here, but for the purpose of this video we will be focusing on Kenealy Nature Park and surrounding trails.
This trail run starts at the Saunders Woods Preserve (parking lot listed below) and crosses over Conshohocken State Rd into Henry Lane Park before entering Kenealy Nature Park. As with most East Coast trails the terrain is very rocky and full of punchy climbs. Between the three parks there is roughly about 6 to 9 miles of trail.
